5 things you need to know about industrial floor scales
Industrial floor scales come in all shapes and sizes, but they do have some common features that are important when making a purchasing decision. What are its load cell capabilities? Is there a warranty? And what about shock-loading? Here are some handy hints about industrial floor scales.

Digital display
Blurry or unreadable displays can be frustrating, annoying, and more importantly, time wasting. There are a few simple checks you can go through before buying. This includes: Is the cover made of glass or plastic? Glass is easier to clean; does it scratch easy? Plastic can scratch easily; and are the numbers easy to see/read? When it comes to the kind of casing for the display, it’s best to have a stainless-steel, water-tight enclosure as it protects the edges from rust and also stops condensation.

Load cells
Designated as the brains of the scale, ignore the type of load cell at your peril. These are usually the most expensive part of your weighing solution. If you’re in the market for an industrial weigh scale and the price seems too good to be true, chances are the manufacturer has put in cheap load cells.

Shock loading
Shock loading is something that needs to be avoided at all costs because it can lead to a critical failure of your equipment. This happens when users overload the system with materials thus damaging it. Whether this is critical will depend on how accurate you need your scale to be for your purposes – the smaller the weight, the more accurate it needs to be for weighing.

Load cell cables
If you were to turn the scale upside down you would see that there are load cell cables in place. As the name suggests, load cell cables are connected to the load cell, so it is imperative that their integrity is kept intact and protected so you can get the most precise reading possible. Some weighing systems may use plastic cabling, however steel braided cables are preferable because they last longer and are also stronger.

Warranty
Investing in plant-ready floor weighing scales doesn’t come cheap, so it’s well worth looking into warranties. Most scales come with a standard five-year warranty, but make sure you go through the policy and look for exclusions. These are the type of things that could end up costing you in the long run.
